Originally launched 16 years ago, the S-Max has stood the test of time and is now in only its second generation. Three engines are available, two diesels – both 2.0-litres, one with 148bhp and the other with 187bhp. The lower powered diesel comes with front-wheel drive and either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed auto, the more powerful motor gets the option of all-wheel drive and the eight-speed as standard.
The new king for Ford, and all manufacturers, is SUV – and electric. And Ford has come into this area with a big bang, the Mustang Mach E. A big muscle machine, albeit a quiet one, with an iconic name and a very affordable price.
